Shaping lives to shape the future...

Admissions Policy

Cornerstone Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, employment practices, athletic or other school-administered programs.

To be a part of our school...

All parents must:

 . Be sincerely committed to securing for their children a Christ-centered classical education which is taught from a distinctively Biblical worldview.

 . Carefully examine the Statement of Purpose, Statement of Faith, and Educational Philosophy, and sign and affirm in conduct the Parental Covenant, fund- raising contract, and other documents as a declaration of wholehearted agreement with and commitment to Cornerstone Christian School.

 . Be willing and able to view the school as an extension of their homes. If the school cannot be an extension of the home, children will not be enrolled here, for to do so would put the child(ren) in the position of having to “choose between two masters”. This only brings confusion and resentment into children’s lives. (In the case of divorced/single-parent families, attempts will be made, whenever possible, to involve BOTH parents in the enrollment procedures and educational process).

. Parent(s) should be supportive of and willing to uphold the Biblical moral, educational and disciplinary standards set by the school.

. Be willing to meet with administration prior to enrollment/school year and at any point during the school year administration deems necessary.

. Attend mandatory parent meeting(s) and uphold fundraising guidelines. Failure to comply without prior agreement with administration will result in student(s) not being allowed to continue at CCS.

. Tuition must be paid on time, or an appropriate payment schedule agreed upon by administration, or student(s) will not be allowed to continue at CCS.

. Feel free to contact administration with any concerns or thoughts.

 

All Students must:

. Whenever possible visit and tour the building, observe classes in progress, and meet with prospective teacher(s) and fellow students prior to enrollment.

. Read and discuss with parents the CCS Parent/Student Handbook.

. Meet with an administrator for a personal interview, demonstrating willingness to be here and sincerity in the signing of the Student Covenant (grades 5 – 12).

. Complete and gain acceptance by administration after the required trial 3 month incoming trial period. 

 

Enrollment Time Schedule:

While desiring to serve the community at large, and out of consideration for available space and resources, all completed forms and registration fees will be accepted starting in March. All prior tuition and fees must be up-to-date (or an acceptable repayment plan in effect) before re-admission will be considered. Enrollment is given on a first-come, first-serve basis as space and time permit. Preference will be given to current CCS families who are re-registering. After the start of the school year enrollment will be considered on a case-by-case basis, as space and time permit.

 

Enrollment Limits:

 In an effort to provide a quality education, and because of space limitations, maximum enrollments for each class have been established as follows:

Young K/ Half Day: 10 students (4 years old. Potty trained) Half day classes 8am - 11:30am Monday - Thursday

 Kindergarten:  5 students (Child should turn 5 by September 1*)

Grade 1:  5  students (Child should turn 6 by September 1*)

Grade 2-3:   5 students per grade

Grades 4-8:   5 students per grade

 Grades 9-12:    5 students per grade

*Note: Children who do not meet the age requirement will be considered on a case-by case basis.

 

Placement:

Cornerstone Christian School is committed to helping students succeed academically. Because of the nature of our program, we reserve the right to place new students at the grade level we assess to be most appropriate for the individual student. Academic testing is generally required to determine proper placement.

Each incoming child will be subject to a 3 month trial period to be followed by a meeting with administration and parents to determine the outcome and future of the student. 

Late Enrollments:

Enrollment at CCS after the start of school will be contingent on the following (in addition to those guidelines noted in the Parent/Student Handbook):

                a. Demonstrated ability at grade level (past grades from former school)

                b. Parental commitment to work with and supply needed help to integrate their children into our system

                c. Successful completion of trial (probationary) period

                d. Please see Financial Policies for late enrollment information.
